Tearfund’s latest Policy Blog post entitled ‘Anti-corruption campaigning, a simple truth?‘ includes this illustration that they have had commissioned to highlight the steps needed to “unearth the truth” on the corrupt exploitation of natural resources and strengthen transparency laws internationally. It’s being featured in this this week’s Parliament Magazine.
This is a very complex problem but the idea of the illustration is to present the need for transparency in a simplified way to help politicians and the rest of us get our heads around it.
You can read more detailed information about Tearfund’s campaign against this corruption in the blog post and also at Tearfund’s Unearth the Truth page on their website.
Tearfund’s Policy Blog is intended to provoke discussion about the government and agency policies and practices which will work best to deliver justice for those living in poverty. I’ve found the articles informative and challenging and helpful in understanding what Tearfund gets up to at a deeper level. I recommend you take a look.
